realistic. like john wayne movies weren't realistic as much, but they're very patriotic and they give you a sense of, "hey, you know, i want to go do that." (music playing) i'd come out of theater having seen some of these old films, movies like "pork chop hill" and "to hell and back" with audie murphy, "sands of iwo jima" with john wayne, i'd come out having -- feeling a peculiar thing. the peculiar thing was i wanted to play war. (tim o'brien) and i remember being with my little buddies, we'd go out to the golf course and pretend we were john wayne. (patriotic music playing) when you've got john wayne, you've already got history right there in front of you embodied in one character. he carries himself as a walking convention. (gene michaud) he's the older, wiser enlisted. he has to train young recruits and he has to be the father. if it's in the line of duty, i'll do what you tell me to do. but as far as my personal life, keep your hands off. that's the same thing your father would tell you. and i wouldn't have listened to him either. that's right. you never did. how do you know? he

to decorate their chapels. in the chapel of the bardi family, professor john white of university college, london, describes how these medieval images came to life. this is a franciscan church, and the franciscans were the passionate preachers of the late medieval world. they used their words to tug at the emotions of the faithful. and at the same time, the painters increasingly tried to bring the gospels and the stories of the saints to life before their very eyes. at first, as you can see in this late 13th century saint francis altarpiece, they did it with stiff, imposing figures and with bright, doll-like symbolic scenes and images. and here next door in a much-ruined fresco, i'm afraid, painted probably only 30 or 40 years later, you can see the revolution represented by the art of giotto, the great contemporary of the poet dante. here is a new soft, warm reality, a new humanity and pathos, a new ability to take the faithful back and make them feel that they were actually there and filled with love for this loving saint whose love of christ and love of life and of the beauties

that's very fair because what do we have to do when we take john outside? he has to get lots of sunscreen. and one that's a deep, dark, rich, chocolate color. but they're both boys, so they're the same, but they're different. hendrick: it is very important that we communicate openly and directly with our children about issues of race, ethnicity, and gender. woman: does anybody know what is the same about us? child: no. our skin. woman: we all have skin. hendrick: and we can start by simply not shying away from answering some very basic questions or comments our children may have-- comments that are not intended to hurt. woman: our ears are different. for example, i once heard a child ask in surprise, "you mean, you're black all over?" or we might hear, "how come he walks so funny?" or, "no girls here. this is a guy thing." questions like these should never be hushed up. instead, they should be regarded as not-to-be-missed opportunities to provide matter-of-fact answers, just as we would answer questions about why the dogs are barking or how come the whistle blows every day at no
